Smart Lipo:
SmartLipo is a liposuction procedure that is FDA approved for body sculpting and fat reduction in areas such as the abdomen, back, legs, knees, hips, chin, neck and arms.

How Does SmartLipo Work?
SmartLipo procedures begin with doctors injecting the target area with medicated saline, which anesthetizes the site and prevents blood loss by shrinking capillaries. Energy from a laser liquefies fat cells, and a small incision is made, through which a tiny vacuum tube suctions out the liquefied fat. SmartLipo generally takes from forty-five to sixty minutes or more to complete, depending on the number of areas being treated.

Reasons to Get SmartLipo
SmartLipo has a number of benefits over traditional liposuction. The dangers associated with general anesthesia are not an issue as only a local anesthetic is used, allowing patients to remain awake during the procedure. In addition, SmartLipo's laser technology spares trauma to the parts of the body surrounding the treatment area, as it actually melts fat, causing less blood loss, bruising and swelling when compared to traditional surgical liposuction.

 

Who Can Get SmartLipo?
SmartLipo often works best only on certain individuals who have a small amount of fat to be removed. Those with larger amounts of fat should look into other options such as tumescent liposuction, which is another safe and effective method of fat reduction.
